One more day in the 50s; Disturbance arrives Wednesday
Tuesday is shaping up to be another very mild day across southeast Nebraska. Many will have another opportunity to reach the 50s, with some inching closer to the 60° mark. We’re forecasting a high of 55° in Lincoln on Tuesday. This is all accompanied by a mix of sun and clouds.
As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will begin to back off by several degrees. We’re thinking 40s for highs on Wednesday with increasing clouds.
This is all ahead of our next storm system, which may throw some precipitation our way Wednesday night. Precipitation chances appear fairly low as of now, but there is still a good degree of uncertainty with any rain/snow chances. If any rain or snow does fall, it would do so on Wednesday evening and overnight.
Part of the reason this forecast is so tricky is that this all depends on the track of an area of low pressure, which has yet to develop. If it takes more of a northerly track, Nebraskans have a better chance of seeing a wintry mix changing over to snow on Wednesday night. If it takes more of a southerly track, there’s a chance it all misses us to the south altogether.
Once we iron out the track of the system, we’ll delve a little more into the finer details of what we might see on Wednesday night. Either way, temperatures will cool off for the second half of the workweek. That cooldown won’t last forever though, we’re looking at highs in the 50s once again by the weekend.
